Hepatitis A on the Rise - Protect Yourself with Vaccination 

Hepatitis A infection is a vaccine-preventable viral infection that infects the liver. Hepatitis A virus (HAV) is contagious and is transmitted when a person unknowingly ingests the virus from objects, food or drinks contaminated by small, undetected amounts of stool from an infected person. 

Symptoms include fever, fatigue, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, dark urine, clay-colored bowel movements, joint pain, and jaundice. The infection causes inflammation of the liver (hepatitis), and severe infections can result in liver failure and even death.
